The 3 Best Restaurant Websites You Want to Emulate

Posted by Kents Herrero on Aug 17, 2017 8:30:00 AM

If there's one thing all of us have in common, it's the love for good food. Everyone has their own favorites and preferences. But when someone wants to taste something new or different, the first thing they'll probably do is search online. This is where a restaurant's online presence comes in and a big part of that is its website.

Unfortunately, many of the websites in the restaurant industry today still are either bland or simply unattractive. Some websites shove too much information down the visitor's throat, much like a dish with too much garnish where the main feature is lost or an overwhelmingly strong flavor that changes a diner's facial expression on the fly; it's simply deterring. Others are just obviously outdated in terms of content or design or just simply grotesque in appearance, like ordering fresh calamari and being served canned, frozen and reheated ones... and from last week too. Ouch!

Why Is My Website Not Getting Traffic?

Posted by Kents Herrero on Jul 27, 2017 8:30:00 AM

You just launched a new website and everything seems great! However, no one is visiting and it's starting to feel like a negative investment. What could be the cause, you wonder?

These days, not having a website for your business is lost business. But is it really that simple? One of the most common misconceptions that website owners have is that once their website is up and running, traffic will come in like moths to a flame and revenue will start flowing. This is simply not the case!

A new website on the internet is like a new kid in school. No one trusts him yet. It will take him time to build trust, get friends and eventually blend in.

However, if you think it's been too long since you launched and you're still not getting any traffic, then you may want to start looking into it.

There are many factors that can affect how, or even if, your website receives traffic. These issues can occur throughout the website's life cycle-- from before it was built to after it's been launched.

Is Your Website Ranking? SEO Statistics to Consider

Posted by Kents Herrero on May 30, 2017 8:30:00 AM

SEO? What's That?

SEO has been a topic of hot debate for years now, but what is it really? In a nutshell, it's making your webpage appear on Google when you search for something.

That's right. When you search for something on the internet, your default search engine will offer you a list of results arranged in order of relevance. Who determines this relevance, you ask? Why, it's the search engine itself. There are a bunch of search engines you can use and all of them have their own algorithms to determine how much a certain piece of content is relevant to what you just searched for. SEO is the practice of making your content appear on a search result with words that you want to be found on.

Posted by Kents Herrero on Mar 9, 2017 8:30:00 AM

Your first impression matters.

This saying is as true as it can ever be when it comes to website design. But who are we impressing? For a website, it's the world! And the world in this case is composed of an amalgam of ever-changing beliefs, opinions and ways to consume content and cat-related videos.

When it comes to designing your website, it is important to stay modern ahead of the game. Website design should be reviewed every two to three years, and for good reason! With just 15 minutes of time, two-thirds of readers would go for something aesthetically pleasing than something ordinary. (Source: Adobe).
